Samsung is set to launch its latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 9 within the next couple of weeks. Now although the Note 9 has been subject to many rumours in the past few weeks, a latest leak has emerged that gives out the handset's price as well as some of its colour variants.

A Twitter user has leaked the image of a promotional Samsung print ad for the Galaxy Note 9, suggesting the likely prices of the 128 GB and 512 GB storage variants. According to the Indonesian advertisement, the 128 GB variant will cost IDR 13,500,000 (Rs 64,000 approx) while the 512 GB variant costs IDR 17,500,000 (Rs 83,000 approx).

Besides the print commercial, another rumour doing the rounds is that Epic Games will keep the Android release of its most popular game, Fortnite, exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – at least for a while before it rolls out to a wider range of Android devices.

In another leak, the S pen of the Note 9 has been compared to the S pen in the previous Galaxy Note 9 device.

The S pen on the Note 9 looks majorly redesigned as it is more angular as compared to the previous S pen. The color of the S pen also matches that of the device’s colour.

As per past rumours, the Galaxy Note 9 will carry the Snapdragon 845 / Exynos processor with a 6 GB or even an 8 GB RAM variant in the offing. Storage options ranging from 64 GB to 256 GB are highly expected and that’s basically been the norm every year. But the most exciting news coming from multiple reports is the use of a 4,000 mAh battery on the Galaxy Note 9, the biggest any Samsung flagship phone has ever had.

The Galaxy Note 9 was also listed on Flipkart, according to a Gadgets 360 report. In the Flipkart listing, all three teaser videos of the latest flagship released by Samsung have also been included. Samsung will probably retain its partnership with Flipkart to sell the Galaxy Note 9 online. Reports suggest that the next Note will be showcased at an event on 9 August.
